This product is currently sold out.
Gwendolyn Grant favoured landscapes and coastal vistas in her paintings, and also captured key scenes from the home front during the Second World War.
Gwendolyn exhibited on her own and with her husband, fellow artist William Gregory Grant, and shared a studio with artist Vida Lahey. She worked with many other artists in Brisbane in her teaching role at the Brisbane Central Technical College, which she continued until she was 75 years old.
Beyond her own practice, Gwendolyn was an art critic for The Daily Mail and an advocate for female independence through her role as President of the Brisbane Lyceum Club. 2019 marks 100 years of the Lyceum Club in Brisbane, and its origin and growth coincide with the themes in this exhibition, having been established by a group of Brisbane women to share and develop their interests in art, literature, music, science, education, journalism and current affairs.
